Facial Implants

Facial Implants

- Chin augmentation
- Cheek augmentation
- Jaw augmentation

Plastic surgeons use facial implants to improve and enhance facial contours. Frequently, these implants will help provide a more harmonious balance to your face and features so that you feel better about the way you look. It is particularly popular for patients who have had nose reshaping, as the size of the chin and cheeks affects the look of the nose.
There are many implants available, manufactured from a variety of materials. They may help strengthen a jaw line or bring the chin or cheekbones into balance with the rest of the face.

Facial implants are most often done to bring the face into balance by building up the chin, the cheeks, or the jaw
A short incision under the chin or inside the mouth allows the surgeon to place a chin implant directly on the bone
Cheek implants are usually inserted through an incision in the mouth and placed directly on (or even below) the cheekbone
Jaw implants are placed directly on the jawbone to create a stronger, more defined jaw line
Finally, a changed face structure with a fuller, balanced look

Benefits of Facial Implants

Facial implants can enhance your appearance and bolster your self esteem. If you are looking for improvement, not perfection, in your appearance and are realistic in your expectations, you may find that a facial implant is the right choice for you.

Such implants may be used to bring better balance to the features of a younger patient. For instance, a teenage girl may want her nose reshaped or her chin brought forward so that these traits are better proportioned. The more mature patient may choose to have an implant placed in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure. For example, during a facelift, a patient may wish to have implants placed over the cheekbones to help restore a more youthful appearance. Implants may also be selected to fill out a face that appears “sunken” or tired.

Preparation for Facial Implants

Before you undergo facial implant surgery, it is important for you to discuss any medical conditions that you have, and let us know about any medications that you are taking including any herbal or other non-prescription ones.
You will have a consultation with the surgeon when you arrive at your destination, where he will have a physical evaluation of the areas to be treated. At this appointment you and your surgeon will discuss your goals, and any last queries you have prior to surgery. From this examination, he can determine the best procedure to use, and then explain it to you in detail, including the benefits and limitations. The surgeon may also recommend a combination of the upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty or submental liposuction, for a better facial profile.
It is important to stress the importance of not smoking before facial implant surgery procedure. Smoking can cause problems with circulation and make complications more likely, including post-operative chest procedures.

Surgical Procedure

Chin Augmentation
Insertion of a chin implant may take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. During the procedure, the surgeon selects the proper size and shape implant to enhance your appearance and inserts it into a pocket over the front of the jawbone. The small incision to create the pocket and insert the implant is placed inside the mouth (along the lower lip) or in the skin just under the chin area.
Usually, the chin is taped after surgery to minimize swelling and discomfort. Sutures in the skin will be removed in five to seven days. If an intra-oral incision is used, the sutures will dissolve.

Cheek Augmentation
Cheek implant surgery usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes. When cheek implants are being placed in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure, such as a facelift, forehead lift or eyelid surgery, the implants may be inserted through the incisions made for those procedures. Otherwise, an incision will be made either inside your upper lip or your lower eyelid. A pocket is then formed and an implant is inserted.

After surgery, a dressing will be applied to minimize discomfort and swelling. The severity and duration of such side effects may vary, especially if another cosmetic procedure was performed at the same time.

Jaw Augmentation
Insertion of a jaw implant usually takes about one to two hours. Internal incisions are made on either side of the lower lip to provide access for creating a pocket into which the lower-jaw implant can be inserted. Dissolving sutures are used to close the incisions.

Recovery and Post-Op Care

You will experience discomfort and swelling in the affected area for several days. It’s normal to experience some temporary difficulty with smiling and talking. Black and blue marks may be visible around the area of implant. Your plastic surgeon will instruct you about dental hygiene, eating and any restrictions to your activities after surgery.
During recovery from cheek and jaw implants, you should be aware that your ability to move your mouth and lips might be diminished temporarily. Stitches used to close the incisions inside your mouth usually dissolve within about 10 days.
We provide excellent post-care support, with follow-up visits and programs to assist your recovery. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know and we will schedule an appointment with the surgeon. View our recommendations for post-operative recovery.

Your New Look

An accurate evaluation of your appearance may not be available for weeks, or perhaps even months. Give yourself plenty of time to get used to your new look.

People will notice a better-looking you – but will not be able to point out your changes.

Preconditions and Risks

A facial implant can shift slightly out of alignment and a second operation maybe necessary to replace it in its proper position. Infection can occur with any operation. If infection were to occur around a facial implant and did not clear up after treatment with antibiotics, the implant might have to be temporarily removed and replaced at a later time. Other, less-frequent risks may be associated with certain implants. Be sure to ask your surgeon for a description of the risks associated with the procedure in which you are interested.

We minimize risks and complications by selecting patients carefully and always having the most skilled surgeons, physicians and nurses carry out procedures. However, despite the highest standards, complications can occur. They are rare, and most patients will not have complications, but if you have concerns about possible complications, please discuss these with your doctor.
